The summer heat outside makes me remember my childhood. This is the time of the year that we usually held our family reunion at a beach near our town. We usually had barbecue by the beach plus home cooked meals like Morcon, arroz caldo, embutido, pancit bato, puto, etc. All you have to do is name it and for sure my mama will cook it for everyone.
Let me share a childhood secret recipe. So get your grill out and take advantage of the sunny weather!
“One flaming passion for flavor! One fiery showcase of grilled cuisine!
1 whole chicken chopped
1 onion, chopped
15 cloves garlic, minced
6-8 lemongrass bulbs, bruised1/3 cup Soy Sauce
3. Put the chicken in the grill make sure to cooked both sides of the chicken. Add the oil to the leftover marinade sauce and baste the chicken with sauce a couple of times. Check if done already by poking through the inner thigh and if the juices run clear it’s done.
You can pair grilled main dishes with your favorite family recipes, such as potato salad or pasta salad. In our family reunion my mom pays and prepare everything. In your case you can ask everyone ro bring a salad of their choice. Salads make it easy to serve a large, hungry crowd at your family reunion. By assigning parts of the meal to different families, you’re assured of a variety of things to serve, and having something for everyone.
